Britax has a reputation for safety and quality, and the Companion shows why. The patented anti-rebound bar on the base is made to keep the seat super-stable. The company also developed a True Side Impact Protection system, including deep side walls and super-padded head support for extra defense. Add the EPS foam and tangle-free, 5-point harness, and baby’s very well taken care of. Do beware of the weight, though; at nearly 10 pounds (not including the base), this one will give you a workout.
